You can't do it now
Hyrule Warriors Legends came out last week on 3DS in Japan, and people are already clamoring for a pretty basic feature -- save data reset. Yep, if you just want to replay the game from a fresh file or resell your game with n...
Check your email
If you're excited to give The Division a go (you can read all about it here compliments of our own Zack Furniss), check your inboxes -- Ubisoft is sending out codes for the beta now.
Of course, the actual event doesn't s...
That took forever
Well, Activision finally announced the Platinum-developed game we all knew existed -- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan.
It's a third-person action game set in the Big Apple (though likely not at 3AM), and wi...
If one wanted to delve into the world of Final Fantasy for the first time, the barrier to entry is generally rather high. You have a host of 50-hour JRPGs, several daunting MMOs, and a number of complicated and deep tactical spinoffs.
Final Fantasy Explorers tries to ease people into the world of Black and White mages with a different, gentler approach, albeit with its own set of flaws.
Players are (mostly) invisible, for one
Earlier, Darren described Invisigun Heroes as being "like Bomberman but everybody is invisible."
That should have been reason enough for me to investigate. It has a nice aesthetic. It looks well-designed. Plus, those old Bomb...
Announce the localization already
Valkyria: Azure Revolution kind of came out of nowhere. People basically assumed that the series was dead since 2011 when the third game came out (which was Japan-only, by the way), and BAM, Sega announces a brand new upcomin...
PC, PS4, and Xbox One
In the far, far future, the postal service has developed self-delivering cardboard boxes. Wait, that's just the premise for Unbox.
Developer Prospect Games has announced that in addition to PC later this year, the game is als...
Let's siege some dungeons
Since we last checked on Necropolis, the third-person action roguelike from Shadowrun Returns maker Harebrained Schemes, it gained four-person cooperative play. Why die alone when you can go down in flames with your dearest f...
There's tons of useless junk too
A number of people have asked me how all of the DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight has measured up since the Season Pass is done. My response is simple -- you can skip out on the pass itself. Instead of paying out for a bunch...
CJ called it
Remember when Sega said a new announcement was coming today, and that classic gaming fans should be excited? Well, I don't think you're going to be very excited.
Sega has confirmed that it is indeed the Sega 3D Classics Colle...
Spreading the love
Released on Steam and Xbox One in September last year, I had already assumed Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime was on PlayStation 4 as well. It turns out it wasn't, but it will be soon. Announced today via the snazzy YouTube vi...
'We're not making Mass Effect'
Naughty Dog's trying something new with Uncharted for its fourth major installment in that it's making use of branching dialogue. It's granting players with a certain degree of autonomy, a feature that's often assoc...
You can do that
The Order: 1886 was well known for two things: being a PlayStation 4 exclusive in a time before Bloodborne was available and being pretty. Note the things not on that list: gameplay and story. Still, if you want to experience...
More daily items
Hyrule Wariors Legends is nearly out in Japan, and as a result, more concrete info is coming out of the woodwork. Due to pre-loading, fans have learned that the file size is 16,101 blocks (2GB). Additionally, there's only one...
First in a decade from the publisher
3D Realms reminded us yesterday that Bombshell is the first 3D Realms game to go gold in over a decade. While the jury is still out on this rather elusive title, I'm glad they're still around having grown up with th...
He just makes everything bad
For the most part, amiibo are used to add small features to games, bonuses that just make everything a little easier. For instance, Hyrule Warriors uses amiibo to grant a spinning attack and to offer some extra weapons. ...
FFVII, X over-represented
The upcoming Monster Hunter-ish Final Fantasy Explorers is a more nondescript, job-system-based affair, but that doesn't mean your favorite characters are absent. While in Trance mode, your character can use previously equip...
Take the good with the bad
Good things come to those who wait. This quote extols the importance of patience. We've been taught our entire lives to be patient people, to just wait a little longer for what we want. It'll be worth it.
Hopefully that's tru...
If you were looking to indulge in the upcoming Wii U version of Gamecube-then-Wii-game The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, it might be worth noting that Amazon has the physical version up for pre-order again. It's the one...
Also, I hope you have a New 3DS
I don't know why it didn't cross my mind, but the upcoming 3DS edition of Hyrule Warriors Legends will not have campaign co-op. This video confirms as much, noting that you can play levels side-by-side with a friend to s...
Harryhausen would be proud
I was lucky enough to grow up with parents who had a penchant for classic films, and B-humor. Hell, their first date was Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and as a child, I was raised with an endearment to the craft,...
That was fast
Last we heard, Metal Gear Online's PC beta was pulled due to an exploit last week, but in the middle of researching when a fix would happen, I found out the thing already launched! According to a post on Steam from the develo...
For whatever reason, I didn't end up completing Resident Evil Zero back when it was released in 2002 -- in fact, it took me 10 years to truly dive into it. I think it just flew under the radar, but thankfully Capcom has opted...
Good things don't happen in caves. A best-case scenario has some bats buzzing through your hair. A worst-case scenario? Ummm, bears or dragons or satanic cults. OR, satanic bears riding dragons. Yeah, fuck that.
Bertil Hörberg, the developer of the Gunman Clive series, has shared a post-mortem of sorts for recent entries in the series on NeoGAF. In short, he concludes that Gunman Clive HD has sold 9,000 units (not coun...
And what's rumored
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is set to arrive in March worldwide, and as usual, Nintendo is being very guarded about what the remake actually entails.
Here are some hard details announced by Nintendo.
Do your part!
When I first heard about The Bug Butcher last year, I thought it looked like a nice modern take on the bubble-popping shooter Super Pang. But I held off. I have a regrettable history of playing games in Steam Early Access onl...
The opposite of a foot fetish
The response to my review of Freedom Planet was pretty positive, as was the suggestion that I'd be reviewing some older Steam games we may have looked over, so here we are. Jotun slipped us by here at Destructoid when it released late last year, but I'm here to remedy that.
This is little game with big heart, big style, even bigger enemies, and strong female lead to boot.
It's all but confirmed at this point
Weeks ago, we learned that there is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game in the works from Platinum Games by way of Activision, in the same vein as The Legend of Korra and Transformers: Devastation. It made perfect s...
Falling with style
Gravity Rush is and remains one of the coolest games on the PS Vita, even three years after its original 2012 release. Unfortunately for fans of cool games, the PS Vita didn't get into nearly as many hands as Sony was ho...
